Question about Sony DVP-FX930 Portable DVD Player
Not for the novice, attempt at own risk, but if you do nothing, you now own a very expensive door stop anyways.

I removed all the screws from the bottom. There are 16 screws. 4 are under the corner rubber feet (not under the two feet at the midline). The feet can be peeled off with a knife. One screw is under a warranty void stick - I had to break that sticker. After removing all the screws the player came apart easily. The cable from the screen has a white connector on the motherboard. There is no clip on this connector and it can be easily removed. I removed it and then reseated it. I replaced the battery without putting the screws back and held the player together by hand while turning on the power switch. I got the initial blue screen. I then tried a DVD and it showed up on screen. I replaced all the screws and it continues to work.
I suspect that the cable connector could work lose again. When it does I might try adding a little epoxy on the cable connector junction to hold it in place.
I dont know if this is the root cause for all blank video reports on your site. But a mechanical failure like a poor cable connection rather than electrical seems to be consistent with reports of intermittent problems before complete video failure.
